i. was. it was. deadly clashes erupt across egypt on the second anniversary of the country's revolution as turns of thousands express their discontent with the president they held to the same power. while barak obama is losing ground in egypt as he starts his second term with the initial expectations for his policy in the arab world bluntly say. the u.k. economy could plunge into recession for the said time in four years according to the latest g.d.p. figures drawn down the by debt and the euro zone's plight.
this is assy coming to you live from moscow hello and welcome to the program at least nine people have been killed and nearly five hundred wounded in clashes with police across egypt on the second anniversary of the revolution that toppled hosni mubarak this time turns of thousands of demonstrators were calling on president mohamed morsi to step down saying his muslim brotherhood bank government is only working for islamists and cairo based reporter belcher has the latest for us. we have had reports from local news outlets that several people have been killed in addition they have been reports of attacks on muslim brotherhood headquarters there in particular the freedom and justice headquarters in dublin who are in the downstairs when it's been a year in addition to austin attacks on government buildings and people expressing their anger here in cairo the cards musée volleys of tear gas coming from the police to protesters pushing people off the square these creates plumes of gas that
you can't breathe and they came to the streets in a generation defying two thousand and eleven and fed up with the injustices of the post mubarak regime and the returns now because people are saying we've seen no change from the top of the agenda people are saying is the economy very hard for people to find food to use on employment rates for example or a seventy seven percent which is staggering the high in addition of course there is a lot of anger directed towards the new constitution which people say is written by an islamist dominated constituent assembly and doesn't represent egypt we've heard a lot of chance against the president mohamed morsi and his group calling for changes and also actually for him to leave. so the full city of suez has in the most violent clashes with the military deployed there to try and maintain security and take a look at this screen. so the city of suez is there so eight
people including a policeman and fourteen year old boy were shot dead as protesters set fire to a building which used to house the local government of there another person has also been shot dead and killed in the city of is my lear where protesters also set the headquarters of the muslim brotherhood on fire while square in cairo has been the epicenter of the rallies much like during the uprising to oust hosni mubarak two years ago and alexandria and portside are also scenes of violent street clashes and. my newspaper says the people of egypt have grown increasingly disillusioned with the policies of uars backed muslim brotherhood. people voted for him to be a good chance so quick at the last support of most of the people who are out in the streets to the people in egypt now who realize that.
religion and politics should not be mixed clearly and that some patients would use. religion to get the support of the people and once we are in power the would act in a very very differently from what the i've been promising and that's part of one of the reasons of the anger you are seeing to the industry to egypt. americans want some ways committee to ensure and secure their interest in egypt but now their pictures and the reality has shown that actually muslim brotherhood will do does not have they were short of the support of the majority of the people in egypt now there is only one party that's actually will decide what's happening in egypt and that's the people of egypt neither the united states nor morsi himself have much say in what's happening to the people of egypt who are back in the streets that. is
why the fate of the regime today. so egypt was one of the first states and there are well dated at the us are said to have matched it was democracy after a vote president obama had some of his highest ratings that has now witnessed that sharp drop in popularity and it's seen as a sign that washington has failed to define a consistent policy in the region he's point to say let's not why the perception of the u.s. and the muslim world has got so bad. i've come here to cairo to seek a new beginning between the united states and muslims around the world words of promise that field of region with hope will respect but as a bomb a begins his second term in office his critics failed him want to first term that fell far short of expectations progress on peace between israelis and palestinians remain stored the promised economic development of afghanistan never took root and
american relations with post mubarak egypt deteriorated and i didn't see if the u.s. and elegance community has more or less thought that it was in control of something called the muslim brotherhood and they brought them from egypt into saudi arabia and i think they thought they could just break out of that wasn't all they could have. asked r.t. or asked and there are five now that i'm not we. also. in libya the u.s. supported the intervention by nato and its allies touting it as a great advance for security entry and rights but the fallout from it ended with the death of the american ambassador and three other members of his staff the united states was overselling their so-called triumph over al-qaeda in a way that was really quite dishonest and dangerous because it was essentially setting the united states up for situations where.
elsewhere was still not just strong but getting stronger and was getting stronger because of policies that the united states had followed and it was washington's politics that did little to win palestinians over to obama's side washington was against the upgraded status of palestine at the united nations angering but not surprising palestinians i would say that the people in general. stop thinking of him as a somebody who will do and will do us any favors or any good and they looked at him that he was very honest to the american interest and to other interests maybe the israeli lobby but not to us. we realize that all our expectation which were very high turned out to be
zero as a matter of fact islamophobia inside the united states is on the increase helped in no small part of by the growing negative portrayal of the muslim world in the media and hollywood recent polls show overall confidence in obama has dropped especially in muslim countries where declined by nine percent in three years global approval of his international policies is also decreased from a positive rating of thirty four percent in the muslim world in two thousand and nine to just fifteen percent in two thousand and twelve. obama came just to beautified the ugly face that bush left it's american interests that lead american presidents the only difference is that one president smiles the other doesn't and the american system and the american interest in the middle east are the problem it's not a personal issue it is a political issue and that's why i didn't have a lot of hope that the arab antipathy has not been softened by obama's support for
the arab spring or his military withdrawal from iraq few american presidents have lost their good standing with the arab world as quickly and as significantly as obama for him now to renew trust in america he'll have to do more than just promise a new beginning in a cairo speech policy r.t. tel aviv. a former cia agent who oversaw the culture of the man sought to be archived as a southern command has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison for leaking classified intelligence john kiriakou was the first to blow the whistle on washington's torture program later revealing the name of an alleged torture a time obey the cia denies the accusations are a fairy and said to enhanced interrogation techniques and their chicken has details for us. the cia veteran the former chief of counterterrorism operations in pakistan john kiriakou will spend thirty months in prison for leaking the identity of an agent but before he was prosecuted mystically the akwa had been actively speaking
out against torture and now he and his supporters believe that he was prosecuted for coming clean over torture practices in the cia it started with an investigation into how military defense attorneys at guantanamo bay obtained the names and photographs of cia personnel authorities eventually tracked one name back to a reporter who had spoken to mr good apple rather than risk a far longer prison term and because he could no longer afford his legal fees and stick it out when a covert agreed to plead guilty to one of the five charges against him violating the intelligence identities protection act by e-mailing the name of a covert cia officer to a freelance reporter who never even published it there's something very disturbing about this case had john kiriakou actually engaged in torture he wouldn't be in any trouble at all he never even would have been investigated because he talked about torture with reporters he's going to prison the fact of the matter is that the u.s. government has classified everything related to its torture practices which means
nobody can be prosecuted for human rights violations that were systematically systematically committed upon coming here is what mr get out will says about that i never tortured anybody. but i got into prison well the tortures of the lawyers the people who murdered and the people who deceived and the man who destroyed the priest he will never face justice and that's the saddest part of the story. this agrees ration is prosecuted more with a blowers than all previous administrations combined while protecting those who have committed torture who have ordered torture behind this wall of classification contrary to popular belief president obama didn't stop the united states from torturing can just stop it from torturing on his watch through an executive order which means that the us could be only another executive order away from some other president or vice president deciding to torture again so kiriakou supporters praise
him for exposing the extent of the cia's use of torture in prisons and activist and also sibel edmonds says the you ask classifies too much data sometimes to cover up wrongdoing and that means insiders making a stand will keep going to jail we do see this type of witch hunt action against those who lead you formation that exposes either government criminality or government waste fraud abuse so this is a selective behind we haven't had a single case where whistleblowers have been successful by pursuing bill so-called channels reading remedies or solutions to these very big problems wrongdoings so when you have no channels there is only one option and that is to get information and put it before the public whether through our website such as we all are partly citizens journalists because as you know mainstream media they act as
the extension of the government here in the united states there are no other channels to go to and the public has no right to know and the good god is very important the point the public and i'm not talking about only people here in the united states look all over the world because people are being a fact that they are doing was we're being criminalized. now on to the cattle fashion a u.s. design unveils clothing that protects privacy and the program will be showing you the outfits that make you invisible to the violence drugs. no i don't think people take it as serious as the governor says of you but i'm should we should we take it more seriously i think ease up with a nuisance you know it's music sound aussies resident you know we're confident stops people in the big brother big seas of file sharing as a saying on our way coming your way out for the short break.
the news a secret lab or a jury to mccurry was able to build a new most sophisticated robot which unfortunately doesn't give a darn about anything tim's mission to teach music creation why it should care about humans in the world this is why you should care only on the. wealthy british scientists on some time because.
markets. come to. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike's cause or for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines two kinds of reports. i. this is r.c. welcome back to the u.k. may be sliding back into recession for the third time in four years the laces g.d.p. figures are even worse than expected the british economy shrank is zero point three percent in the fourth quarter of twenty twelve and achieve zero growth for the whole year the u.k.'s finance minister george osborne described it as a very difficult economic situation and he said with debts building up at home and problems with the eurozone the u.k. has to confront stations so the director of the institute of economic affairs in
london mark little that says the british government is not doing enough. of course we need to bear in mind when you look back a couple of years later often these numbers are revised up or down so we shouldn't really trust them to the very last decimal point what we've seen it appears over twenty twelve is not the british economy absolutely tanking but basically flat lining and that is pretty much been the picture for the last two years it's not a crushing recession but it's certainly not apparent back certainly what the coalition government here in the u.k. are doing isn't working if the aim is to produce growth rates of two or three percent and indeed the government's independent forecasters suggested two years ago that we would be experiencing those sort of levels and growth of growth in the u.k. economy about now i'm afraid that was turned out to be a pottery but let's be clear about this austerity that's that use a lot does saying that the u.k.
government has persuaded itself and most of the media and all of their political opponents to that there is some savage program of spending cuts being undertaken in the united kingdom that's a long way from the truth when you actually look at the numbers rather than the political rhetoric the government is cutting spending by about one percent a year a pretty trivial amount and they are taking far far too long to bring the budget back into balance they also need i think a clearer plan but what's really going to attract business investment in the u.k. and what's going to make it easier for entrepreneurs. russia's parliament gives the first new order to a ban on the promotional homosexuality among children scuffles to stay doing between gay rights supporters planning protests and violence and of course how closely following events looking at. mine or child getting some at a san francisco could mean somebody is watching he says he says
a treat like that playing with my own is by. british german and dutch authorities have all called on their citizens to leave the . gaza immediately they fear the country's second largest city could soon become the target of millicent a tux similar to last week's deadly hostage crisis in neighboring algeria political analyst patrick henningsen things after shots from the libyan revolution osp a head islamic extremist throughout the region it is natural to have that fear we've had a number of serious incidents in libya and also in neighboring algeria recently so yes it would definitely be off limits for foreigners the destabilization we see right now is a direct result of the nato policies that brought about the situation there with the overthrow of khadafi and they also have to take europe has to take responsibility as well as america for the spread of any islamic extremism into the
neighboring countries there are rumors that were floating around recently that x. could off the chemical weapons box were being shipped over to syria and we're going to be used to blame assad. was drivers monitoring americans from the skies in the name of national security maybe a cause that you are so seriously concerned about protecting their privacy and as predicted up to thirty thousand drones will be patrolling the nation by twenty twenty luckily they could be a trained solution for those unwilling to be watched in the situation in the design counter-surveillance fashion. keeping a close eye on civilians with a little help from drones. in a move approved by congress in seven years the u.s. will help thirty thousand mester drones monitoring its territory from the air that opens the door for a lot of abuses of privacy. from not just the government but corporations and
businesses too. in a fight for privacy this new york designer came up with a counter-surveillance clothing line intended to shield people from those watchful lenses a burka a scarf and a hoodie are the key garments in the collection this is a garment that's designed to be thermally reflective which means that he bounces off it and he does what he was for thermal imaging in particular this technology is used a lot on drones and he would use if there were drawings harboring about manhattan anybody who is out on the street is clearly traceable the idea of this collection is that putting on something like this. is a bit are. these parts of your body. become very hard to detect. from a potential fashion statement to a technology that could eventually be used in rescue operations or even on a battlefield i think are just thing. a market talent been addressed it's
a new area and it's sort of a crossover between tactical and fashion it adds a little extra coverage to the face out of harvey calls his consumer market and fashionably paranoid if you appear to me and i can see you i'm quite alright with that but if you appear in an automated systems and how it becomes a little more to your disadvantage because this data can be easily mine tracked and identified another counter-surveillance item in the collection the off pocket for a phone once a mobile device is put inside there are no more signals going in and out the strength of the cell phone signal out of one who. hundred goes down to zero in seconds the metalized fabric and that acts as a farraday cage to block the signals from the phone adam says this is a way to turn off your phone and block trucking since the introduction of the patriot act and since then there's been a large erosion of privacy i would say is not. confined to the us either this is
a global problem to start a conversation and make people more aware of the growing trend of surveillance through fashion is adam's goal the designer admits the clothing line is not for everybody but those who want to adapt to these new realities could now be a step closer to avoiding the gaze of big brother and going to party new york. russia has completed is the modernization of an engine diesel electric submarine it was a handing over to india's navy at these villas the shipyard in northern russia so the submarine has been our great ground contract find in twenty ten it has undergone a complete overhaul with russian specialists improving its control systems under stalling and missile complex the shipyard has already ungraded four other diesel electric submarines fully into its plan the latest will leave will move by in three days. to some other news stories from around the globe

a comeback and all his resident in new york want to ask the public that stance on the morality of the internet file sharing. kim dotcom just launched his new file sharing service maggette he says by using it you're saying yes to internet freedom is file sharing the future of the internet this week let's talk about that have you ever stolen a movie or music off the internet i plead the fifth i'll take that as a yes if you think that anything wrong with that you know why dude people get very angry about it and send people to jail that are not the problem is with it being wrong is that people who need to make money don't make their money. should they just figure out a new way is it up to them or is that up to us to stop taking it. have you never
stolen anything off the web for moral reasons or just because you never have never have you know how to if it were easy and you did know how to would you do it more often if i knew how to do it i mean criminals every day doing bad things with expelling you know should it be free should music in movies be free. not autistic or social by you but. i don't think people take it as serious as the government takes its we should we should we take it more seriously hard to ease up with. its music but it's not money coming out of your pocket like it has out of the artists or directors or studios. i don't know mobile size of the firm so i think it's been . sort of issue it moves with how do we stop people from stealing no if it's so easy i think they need to appreciate the arts and media and they will appreciate and does and steal music yeah i think it's better to give
a dollar to the arts than you know a politician or your government yes of course or cigarettes but maybe if some of it will go to some kind. of the nation maybe it will inspire people to do so do you think though that you know the future is going to have a whole different landscape for intellectual property that will view it differently like it's kind of everyone's. i don't know i haven't really thought about it i mean i guess if you write a song you'd still yours so you should still have get credit for it at least ninety nine cents and you had so much as you should get something whether or not you think file sharing is the future of the internet the bottom line is enough people do it to pose a serious threat to current business models. and after a very short break it's all seize on the money with
